Raw Deal # 5: Calling for Intifada, Calling for Jewish Blood
This is Michael Lumish, 7 AM on the morning of Monday, September 19, from the city of Oakland in the San Francisco Bay Area, the land of vineyards and wineries, Chinatowns with delicious food in both Oakland and San Francisco, and our famous Cioppino, which is Italian seafood stew made famous in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, the Ginger Bread Town.
One of my recent themes, as those of you who follow Israel Thrives knows, is that it must be acknowledged that cries for intifada are nothing less than cries for the murder of the Jewish people.
As you guys know, I have been writing about this and I very much resent the way universities around the country – including, of course, my old alma mater, SF State – indulge these students and give them a cookie when they do so.
In other words, within living memory of the Holocaust, when German students gathered in university quads and called for the elimination of Jewish people - as well as their books - from German society, so we now have students throughout western Europe and the United States calling for the murder of Jewish people via “intifada” and university administrations couldn’t care less.
But, then, when you think about it, why should they care when western Jews could hardly care less themselves?
Jewish people, it should be noted, are the only people on the planet wherein college students feel self-righteous, moral superiority in calling for murder.
They honestly believe that calling for intifada, that is, calling for Jewish blood, is a highly commendable and ethical act that should be rewarded and it is, in fact, rewarded.
In the 1960s, anti-war protesters likewise gathered in university quads around the country and sometimes even called for fighting the cops in the streets, but they never targeted a single ethnicity for death, as we are seeing on university campuses today.
But, as we know, today the western left, in general, tends to think that the Jews, particularly those of us in Israel, are fair game because we are allegedly mean to the very people whose ancestors of people who held us as second and third class non-citizens under the boot of Arab-Muslim imperial rule for thirteen long centuries.
Jews and Christians were held in contempt by Muslims living under their dominion and represent a minority population at least as persecuted as were black people under the system of Jim Crow in the United States.
At least black people could legally repair their places of worship, which is far more then we can say about Jews living under dhimmi status.
Jews and Christians couldn’t build or repair houses of worship.
Jews and Christians had no rights of self-defense or access to the courts.
Jews and Christians were disallowed positions of authority over any Muslim which, ipso facto, meant that Jews and Christians maintained the very worst jobs in society for 13 long centuries.
Jews and Christians couldn’t ride horses, only donkeys or mules
Sometimes Jews weren’t even allowed to leave their places of residence during rainstorms lest their filth wash into the streets thereby contaminating their Muslim neighbors.
And, let us not forget, that Jews and Christians had to pay protection money, the Jizyah, like a pizza shop owner kicking protection money upstairs to Tony Soprano (of the HBO television series, The Sopranos) lest he send Furio or Chrissy down to kick some ass or kill a few people.
At least Tony, and the North Jersey boys, never justified their crimes by insisting that their persecution of those around them for the purpose of financial gain was a sacred religious imperative.
I mean, at least Tony Soprano, for those of you familiar with the show, never told his people that beating the whole crap out of those who owe them money was a gleeful delight to the Lord God Almighty.
On the contrary, even one of Tony’s top enforcers, the character of Chris Moltisanti, referred to Tony as “the guy that I’m going to hell for.”
So, make no mistake, calls for intifada on university campuses are nothing less than calls for murder because the Jewish people simply refuse to live under the terms of Arab-Muslim imperial rule.
It’s not about land, per se.
Israel is no bigger than Jersey, itself, after all.
The conflict is about the Muslim religious imperative, as described in the Qur’an and the Hadiths, to hold the “people of the book” – that is Christians and Jews, among others - in a perpetual state of second and third class non-citizenship.
However if we refuse that status – if we refuse to pay the Jizyah or refuse to bow and scrape before Islamic religious authorities, then we are to be crucified or to have a hand and a foot, if not an arm and a leg, chopped off from opposite sides of the body.
I can’t quite get over that little bit of sadistic Sharia law.
I mean really, what kind of “religion of peace” suggests that the chopping off of hands and feet, if not arms and legs, from opposite sides of the body is an act beloved in the sight of G-d?
They did it in Muhammad’s day and they are doing similar things, if not precisely the same thing, today in places like Saudi Arabia and the Islamic State (ISIS).
But Israel is the Dhimmi that Got Away and the Arabs of the Middle East, on theological grounds, do not like it one little bit.
The Long Arab-Muslim War against the Jews of the Middle East is not about social justice for Arabs who, traditionally in the Middle East, could hardly care less about western notions of universal human rights or social justice.
They dress it up in such terms because it appeals to well-meaning western muttonheads and many Arabs and Muslims, particularly of the younger variety, have come to believe it themselves.
When Israeli Arabs send their children out onto the streets of Jerusalem to kill Jews they do so generally in the false belief that they are the victims of those nefarious Jews, those children of Gorillas and Swine.
The Jews of Israel want nothing more than to be left the hell alone to create medical and technological doo-dads, litigate against one another, and send Natalie Portmans out into the world.
Unlike within Islam, Judaism contains no religious imperative to hold others under subjugation, but that is definitely a prime criterion of Islam.
This is not about a two-state solution because time and again, going back 80 years to the British Peel Commission, the Arab world has declined a Palestinian-Arab state if it means living in peace next to a Jewish one.
This is not because – as much of the western left would have you believe – that the Jews of the Middle East are racist, imperialist fascists – but because under Islamic law any land that was ever grabbed by the the Islamic community (the Ummah) must always and forever remain under the Ummah –– until the entire planet is ruled by the children of Muhammad and the “unbelievers” are shoved back in their holes.
So, therefore, it is not so much about land as it is about the domination of others.
And this is what the snowflakes of San Francisco State University – and campuses all throughout the western world – are calling for when they huddle in their safe spaces and demand the blood of the Jewish minority in the Middle East.
They do not want an end to the “occupation” because there is no occupation.
Israel is occupying Judea and Samaria in the way that the Japanese occupy Japan or the French occupy France.
Which is to say, not at all.
